The Local Government Pension Scheme
The LGPS is changing from 1 April 2014. If you are paying into the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), you'll automatically be in the scheme from 1 April 2014. If you're retired or leave before then, there's no change to your pension. Find out more >>
The administration of Westminster pensions is undertaken by the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA). The LPFA is the largest Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) provider in London and one of the largest in the UK. LPFA has its own pensions fund and also assists other local authorities with all aspects of LGPS administration. The LPFA undertakes the administration for Hertfordshire County Council and also four London Boroughs, including Westminster City Council.
The LPFA’s experienced pensions specialists deliver a range of services to support Westminster’s pension administration function. Services include:
• Calculations and payments due as a result of rights arising from the LGPS
• Updating member’s pension records when notified of changes e.g. joining the scheme, changing hours or leaving the scheme
• Processing the pensions payroll on a monthly basis
The LPFA also provides effective communications on behalf of Westminster to help to deliver often complex pensions issues in a clear and concise way. Communications range from Annual Benefit Statements to Employer Newsletters; from scheme guides and factsheets to an up-to-date website specific to Westminster. Additionally our online member self-service system allows members to view personal and financial information about their pension securely.
Members can contact the LPFA if they have a query regarding their pension or simply want clarity on new regulations coming into effect.
University of the Third Age (U3A) will be holding a presentation at City Hall on the 26th February. Here you will find out about their services and how they can help retired and semi-retired people join a wide range of groups. If you are interested in attending please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit http://www.u3a.org.uk for more information

Welcome to the Westminster Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Website.
As chair of the Superannuation Committee I consider that the LGPS is an excellent pension scheme providing employees with access to a secure pension, underwritten by legislation, with additional benefits including life cover.
